Group Psychotherapy with the Elderly

Raman Kapur and Margaret Pearce

The paper reviews the literature on psychotherapy with the elderly and points to the lack of therapeutic interventions with this patient population. Transferences, loss and existential issues are reviewed and the paper analyses group processes which can help reconstruct the life of the elderly patient which has been thrown into chaos as a result of the ageing process. The paper encourages clinicians to be more sensitive to the psychological needs of the elderly and provide appropriate therapeutic interventions to meet these needs.
